Francis Ngannou Documentary ‘Fighting Instinct’ Follows Rise From Cameroon To UFC

-

Francis Ngannou will be competing for the UFC heavyweight title on Jan. 20 against current title holder Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 200 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Ngannou, who is fresh off of the 2017 Knockout of the Year thanks to his brutal uppercut against Alistair Overeem, has had a long and intriguing road to where he is today as one of the top mixed martial artists in the world.

The heavy-handed heavyewight was born and raised in Cameroon, living in poverty and receiving very little education while he was growing up. He turned down various offers from gangs in his small neighborhood before eventually taking up boxing at age 22.

Ngannou was forced to take a break from boxing due to a health issue, before moving to France to pursue the career full-time when he was 26. Now 31, Ngannou has established himself as one of the most feared strikers in MMA.

To really get the depth of Ngannou’s rise to the top, a mini-documentary titled “Fighting Instinct” was released to showcase the long journey to the UFC.

You can check out the full video below ahead of his title fight at UFC 220.

NOTE: Make sure to turn on the English subtitles on YouTube so you can follow along with his story.
